    Akiva: Since when has the accomplishment of none of one's publically pronounced goals become in your very own words, "an important achievement?" We have shed precious IDF blood due to the emotional miscalculations of Omert. With the end result being that after a month of horror and struggle for the young men and women involved; the status quo remains basically the same as it was four weeks ago - our soldiers are still being held captive, and Hezbollah still reigns supreme in Lebanon with a very much alive insane man at it's head. After the brief respite, when Hezbolla has once again been rearmed by its Iranian and Syrian backers, and rockets once again are raining down on the innocent - more of our our valiant soldiers precious blood will once again be shed retaking the same old tired ground, when we should have pushed Hezbolla all the back to the gates of Tehran in the first place. When will appeasers such as you ever learn?
